A five-piece from Lombardia, Ricordi d'Infanzia only released an album and a couple of singles in 1973. They had previously played under the name of Gli Aspidi and were also present on the Fonit compilation "Nuovi complessi d'avanguardia da Radio Montecarlo". With the new name I Ricordi d'Infanzia, since 1972, they played as support band with I Pooh and Le Orme. "Io Uomo" contains a very good progressive sound, based on mediocre lyrics on the creation of mankind (a recurring theme in many Italian prog bands' concept albums). The eight tracks album has its best moments in "Morire e non morire" and the opening "Caos", one of the few tracks with keyboards to the fore. After the album release, totally unnoticed due to the lack of promotion from the record company, the group had a line-up change, with newcomers Gianni Bari (sax) and Ugo Biondi (keyboards) replacing Cassina and Vergani, and they played until 1976.
